Bondor-Stone, Annabeth The Pirate Who’s Back in Bunny Slippers (Shivers #2) 201 pgs. Harper, 2016. $12.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
Shivers and his best friends, Margo, and fish Albee must try to find the Treasure Torch. If they fail to do so, then the Mayor will take away his boat home, the Land Lady. Luckily they have a clue, it’s a rhyme they must figure out. To follow the clues, Shivers must win a hot dog eating contest, they all must pretend to be named Frank, and Shivers will have to face his fears, again and again. Features illustrations throughout.
This was a madcap treasure hunt with all kinds of zany escapades. I liked that we got to know Shivers big brother Brock and to solve a big mystery from the first book. I did find myself a bit worried that there wouldn’t actually be any ocean type pirating, but the author didn’t disappoint. I think 3-4th grade students will love this series, with it appealing covers and fun adventures. I will be adding the series to my library.
